Reflections of an IAHPC Board Member

IAHPC Board Service – It has been an incredible privilege to have served on the Board of IAHPC and support the development of hospice and palliative care around the world. It has struck me each time I’ve met with or emailed my colleagues around the world how similar our issues and concerns are in serving our patients and families and yet how dissimilar we are in resource availability. I appreciate all of my colleagues for their passion for our work and their persistence in making a difference. Although my service on the board is coming to a close, the work we must do to ensure that every person on this earth has access to appropriate hospice and palliative care is ongoing and I commit myself to continuing to support IAHPC with information sharing via the newsletter or website and with my dollars as I am able. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity!
